Max Payne V2

by DrDean
Please explain why you're reporting this file:

Max Payne's 10th anniversary was on July 23, 2011! Celebrate that special occasion by downloading this mod, installing Max Payne 1 & 2, and chugging an entire bottle of painkillers to get you in the mood.

As of July 23rd 2011, I've updated Max Payne to version 2.0. Changes include:

-Fixed head rigging for the wounded outfits, less of a gap between neck and chest.
-Replaced duffle bag with another Max head. Same as default, except wounded. Use Simple Native Trainer to switch to this or a similar mod.
-Added classic flashback undercover outfit from Max Payne 1.
-Optional classic flashback texture replacements from Max Payne 1.
-Removed mipmaps from all textures, meaning textures will always be high resolution no matter your graphics settings.

While I haven't tested this in Grand Theft Auto IV personally, I have received several confirmations that it works there with some facial flaws. This mod was designed for Episodes From Liberty City: The Ballad of Gay Tony and that is what is recommended you play with. I'm not responsible for your Niko or Johnny breaking, so always make backups!

He's not flawless, but he does what he's supposed to do. I should probably mention he's going to be emotionless, as well. I didn't bother rigging his face properly. I don't like to give any excuses for errors in the download, but this isn't some professional download. I converted him because I like Max Payne and I thought others would like him too.

I converted Max's various costume changes to replace Luis' alternate jackets, pants, all of that. There's only 4, but at least you have some variety.

I'd also like to thank 3Doomer and quechus13 for their tireless support of putting up with my scrupulous errors and issues while exporting Max, as well as rappo and Ash_735 from the GTA Gaming forums for helping out with the upload issues. Can't forget Rockstar and Remedy Games for publishing and developing Max Payne 1/2 and the subsequent mod tools!

Installation information is included in the download.

My buddy Gentlemanne of Duece took the liberty of doing most of the screenshots for me.

Can someone make a * t-shirt already? I don't think it's too much to ask for when people can make cool * * like this!

9/10 becuse of some issues. Also it does work on cutscenes but like he said he didn't map the face so it looks alittle odd.

just tested it and I replace it with niko nothing wrong and no crash...

Just remember to use first clothes before replacing the file

EDIT: the bug is there's something strange in his head but it's not really noticable though

sadly I downloaded this and replaced the player.rpf but no success in game, I already have some asi mods and vehicle mods but apparently the player doesn't want to change...

EDIT: worked on gta iv, besides the white thing in his face.

Amazing :D

Can't wait to see more skins coming.

@stagwarts, you have to replace the playerped in the TBoGT folder, not the EFLC one.
Posted on July 14, 2011 4:08PM by DrDean
I did... I have eflc-copy folder and then from there I go into tbogt and so on but it didn't work, maybe I should change both?

Replace any playerped.rpfs you see.

Make sure you back up the originals, though.
Posted on July 14, 2011 11:12PM by DrDean
HEY BRO THIS IS AWESOME!!!10/10 Please make for gta iv (replacing niko):D

Any chance you could make Max Payne from the first game?

Also Chris Redfield from Resident Evil 5?

Some Call of Duty models?

Any of those would be so amazing, even more so than this mod.

Sweet 10/10 I don't have TBOGT so I agree with Core.Max2010 I would love to see this for Niko and I agree with Spykeeboy Chris Redfield and the Call of Duty Models would be very nice to see too maybe even a western skin like from call of juarez 2 would be nice either way keep em coming:D

Yeah, I haven't tested it, but try replacing Niko with this download. NikoFromIndo said it works for the most part.

I'm also very interested in doing a t-shirt, but bump mapping/normal mapping support is broken/glitchy. I'm not doing a t-shirt until that is fixed.

I prefer Max Payne 1 Max to 2 Max, but I felt Max from 2 would fit better in LC. I'll think about it. Call of Duty stuff would be difficult, mostly because of the multiple textures it uses for the torso/pants. You can only have one texture applied per torso/legs. There might be hacky ways around it, but I haven't quite played with that yet.

works just fine as niko

Do a full crysis nano suit conversion, helmet and all
Posted on July 16, 2011 1:25AM by pedee pablo
Crysıs suit would be SWEET!
Posted on July 16, 2011 4:26AM by Spykeeboy
Someone already made a crysis nanosuit 2.0 mod, I would prefer crysis 1 nano suit more though...

Posted on July 25, 2011 7:37AM by Rexleo435
Yeah, but his face is missing in cutscenes.
Posted on July 26, 2011 7:49PM by DrDean

Posted on August 10, 2011 10:44PM by falcont2t

Something weird is sticking out of his head.
Posted on December 22, 2011 9:35PM by Tango113
You're playing it on regular IV, right?

I should probably make it easier to notice this is for that TBoGT DLC.
Posted on December 23, 2011 9:18AM by DrDean
Dean, do you have any plans on releasing MP1 Max? MP2 Max is great and all, but he does not even come close to this guy:
Posted on January 8, 2012 3:08AM by JerryKapowitz
Yeah, you're right. I've considered releasing another version, but I'm not sure yet. Doesn't help that I procrastinate and am very lazy.
Posted on January 14, 2012 11:11PM by DrDean
Oi this is awesome, but since Niko has a Eastern European accent, could you make Vladimir Lem from Max Payne?
Posted on April 5, 2012 10:39AM by EnvaFilm
@DrDean Hi,check my custom face to this Mod:

Did you like it?

Posted on June 30, 2012 12:13PM by IANVITOR100
I loved the Max Payne 1&2. I hope this works than the other version that had face bug issue.
